A Love Note to All Things Copper
Apron front aka "farmhouse" sinks have been the rage for a while now (thanks Chip and Jojo!) and there's no end in sight for this functional and stylish trend. While the traditional white fireclay or quartz sink is simplistic and beautiful, we have been finding inspo in the uniqueness and versatility of none other than copper. Although copper fell out of favor to stainless steel and fireclay in the past three decades, it has made a recent comeback in kitchen design, particularly in high-end and luxury kitchens. Read along to find out why we love it.
Durability: Copper is a durable and long-lasting material, which means copper sinks can withstand daily use and maintain their appearance for years.
Antimicrobial properties: Copper has natural antimicrobial properties that can help prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other harmful pathogens. This makes copper sinks a good choice for areas where hygiene is important, such as kitchens and bathrooms. For this reason, copper has been used in kitchen design for centuries, dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans.
Unique appearance: Copper has a unique and beautiful appearance that can add warmth and character to a space. Over time, copper sinks develop a natural patina that can enhance their appearance and create a one-of-a-kind look.
Low maintenance: Copper sinks are relatively low maintenance and can be cleaned with a mild soap and water. The natural patina that develops over time can also help conceal minor scratches and blemishes.
As you can see, copper sinks are a great addition to your kitchen, but why stop there? Range hoods, faucets, and range accessories in copper are also beautiful and can compliment each ether well. Consider us the pioneers of the copper comeback!
